Nice one. It seems that you greedy Yanks should change your tune to "In $ we trust" instead of "In God we trust".

Opposition to TTIP is growing, especially where it counts!

Another stumble for TTIP

"Labour MP Frank Field, who backed the amendment, said: "We can't have kangaroo courts, operating only to America's advantage, deciding how we should trade in respect of the NHS.""

Companies that purchase health care debts cheaply then collect it aggressively!

Shit happens Sirus .

You think that's bad how about giving a baby nitrous oxide instead of Oxygen

Man, is this STILL going on? Whisky Tango Foxtrot?!?!?!?
40 to 50 YEARS ago:

1977... Norristown, Pennsylvania

A few years before that, a hospital in Pasadena, Texas (Southmore Medical Center -- newly built) had this happen... The FIRST baby born at the hospital, well it wasn't the baby that died, it was the mother. Error in labeling the outlets between the Oxygen and the Nitrous Oxide.

4 years earlier, in Ontario, Canada, the same mistake happened but with 14 deaths.

The list keeps going on and on.

http://connection.ebscohost.com/c/articles/53520755/breath-death


How is it that ANY hospital these days can be built/remodeled without checking ALL of that sort of stuff is totally beyond me -- if, for no other reason than their insurance companies will demand it to avoid huge liability lawsuits.

I guess head-in-a$$ disease is not confined to the USA but is pandemic worldwide...

Damn. Thought everywhere OX is left hand thread. But if you have a connector that doesn't have a thread. Hell Bells, do they need a building code that requires all OX lines and connectors to be some non-compatible (not metric or English) size so they can't be crossed? Because whatever is being done now isn't enough.

Oxygen left hand thread ??? 20+ yars of working with industrial gas cylinders ( welding /cutting)left hand thread is for propane ,Acetylene etc .never come across a left hand thread Oxy cylinder
BOC , Air Products ,Linde and air liquide cylinders are all the same fittings and they are the big 4 main suppliers.
Life is what you make of it :-)

As in resign or fired? As in criminally prosecuted? Or, as in 'head on a pike'? The last one would likely be my favorite of the three for punishing that '(ill)health minister'...

Sure... But....

When the contractor that built the building accidentally/negligently crosses the lines INSIDE THE WALLS... Threads or connector size doesn't matter. It won't be O2 coming out the O2 connections inside the hospital room(s).

Pfizer fined £84.2 million

I find something wrong with this report & it's not about overcharging!

Phenytoin is still being dispensed?

That drug was developed in the 1930's & by 2005 was being phased out as it has drastic side effects.

After her discharge in 2005, my partner was prescribed that along with Kepra (brand name as the medical name is too long & awkward to pronounce). By the summer of that year, they stopped prescribing Phenytoin for her. The Kepra wasn't enough to stop her having fits so after letting her consultant know that, he informed me about why Phenytoin was being phased out. He then added Lamotrogine which worked a treat.

Why is Phenytoin still being prescribed?
